Stay on a Tree Farm in the Clackamas Wilderness

Wonsor Woods is a 622-acre (251.7 hectare) farm located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain range near Estacada, Oregon. The estate fully opened last summer for weddings, events and B&B stays. Each room is unique, offering a variety of beautiful views from Mt. Hood and the Cascade Mountain Range to farm fields and Portland city lights. Over 500 acres (202.3 hectares) of this stunning farm are forested and available to guests for fishing, riding and hiking. Wonsor Woods is the perfect place to stay while exploring the Wild and Scenic Clackamas River and the surrounding Clackamas Wilderness. Enjoy the closest whitewater to Portland, Oregon on the Upper Clackamas River with class III and IV rapids. Take in sunset views paddling with Clackamas River Outfitters during a Twilight Lake Tour, hike the stunning Clackamas River Trail, and relax on a pontoon boat that comfortably seats nine.
